Although Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry finished tied for seventh place at a golf tournament in South Lake Tahoe on Sunday, it was a comeback performance for him in terms of a yearly bet he has with his father.
Dell Curry, a former NBA player, and Steph both play in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament every year and put a wager on who shoots the lowest score. The past two years, the winner of the father-son duo had to jump into Lake Tahoe.
In 2017, it was Dell who took the plunge. Last year, it was Steph. But this year, they changed up the terms of the bet.
Instead of a dunk in Tahoe, the loser of the bet has to sing a karaoke song chosen by the winner while wearing an outfit the winner also picks out. The winner was Steph, so he has the chance at some playful humiliation of his father.
“Soon, maybe next year, we’ll have a nice little karaoke battle,” Steph said in a video he took with his father after they were done playing. “I get to pick out his outfit, the song and we’re going to dial it up.”
Dell, who finished tied for 15th place with former NBA player Ray Allen, responded, “I got time to get right.”
Former NFL quarterback and football broadcaster Tony Romo, who was paired with Steph on Friday, won the tournament.
